Unknown Rocksteady tune - help required!

Postby AdamClark » Wed Jul 10, 2013 10:06 am

Anyone have any idea what this tune is. It is on a blank. The matrix is as follows:

WIRL BG 4493 // WIRL FBG 7392

It could be Rita Marley or The Soulettes?

Any help appreciated

B G ? Seems it is a Boris Gardiner production.
If you had a snippet, that would help. Normally, RM's voice is pretty easy to recognize. Not too sure she worked with BG but he was rather ubiquitous in those days, and a number of his productions only appeared on blank label.
Or, if it is BC instead of BG, it might be a Caltone production.

Nice tune, didn't know it! First time i hear a Hyacinth song with such convincing vocals. She sounds like a mix of Judy and Marcia.
Some Bronco tunes were re-pressed in Japan, wish they had done that one too.
